Perilli Angel ST - poor RHS wear

My bike came with Pirelli Angel ST tyres when I bought it.
I'm the 2nd Owner.
Pretty sure the OO put them on ~15,000 k
It is now 22,900k. and in the last 2 weeks I have noticed this poor wear on RHS.

On closer inspection is is starting to scrub out as a flat side and the tread depth is very low on the side grooves.

My thoughts... Commuting... Bloody Right turns on a roundabouts!!!

Your Thoughts?

Hmm, I'm not so sure about that. The wear on the outside sipe is quite far off centre. The tire would need to be quite under inflated and the road camber would need to be extreme and continuous to cause wear that far on the outside the contact patch.

nope not the road camber

notice the flat on the Center part - that is square and not cambered.

It is the 45 deg flat spot on the RHS of tread between center and chicken strips where the issue is.

Hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like the tires are getting towards the end of their life as it is?
